It has been quite a while since I did the ignition switch on my 82. If I recall I drilled a hole and used an easy out to remove the bolt stub. When I installed the new one I did not break off the head of the new bolt figuring I would rather take the chance of making it easier for a thief than to go through that again. Must have been a real PTA
Sometimes you can use a pencil with an eraser on the end of it like a screwdriver. If not you also can use a center punch on an angle to start turning it and finish it off with a pair on needle nose plyers.
Depends on your size but I have to pull the seat out and put the top back and wedge myself under the wheel to get to see what to drill. Then having a good light (LED TYPE) that won't burn you to see. WEAR SAFETY GLASSES when drilling. It is fairly soft metal. If the breakoff bolt broke off above the
surface then you could use a drummel cutoff wheel to cut a flathead slot. If I have to drill, I use one of those square tappered easyouts after I drill and
hammer it in there and grab it with a little wrench or small vice grips and it's over. Always replace it with a bolt with a head on it so if you ever have to do it again it is much easier, and then if any of us want to drive your car when you are not around we can.

I'm completing a steering box replacement and noticed that there are a couple of wires that got disconnected under the dash and I can't seem to find where they go. Wires are located by the steering column. It's a White/Black (possibly gry/blk) wire and black wire connected together with...
I am brand new to the forum. I have been following for a few discussions for a couple weeks now and decided it would be wise to join and share my experiences here. I bought a '74 Spider in pretty rough shape before Christmas and have been working to bring it back to life since. I...
Searches have this procedure all over the lot. This is NOT a BOSCH system. I have a SPICA system with a three hole starter and no lift. I'm looking to change out my starter and before I remove the air filter housing... I know about the shoulders bolts etc. My vision is to remove the air filter...
